The Conclusion: Defining Level 1 Autism

You are currently viewing The Conclusion: Defining Level 1 Autism

As we wrap up our campaign on level 1 autism, we want to reiterate that Autism spectrum disorder is becoming increasingly prevalent and is one of the fastest-growing developmental disorders in the United States. According to The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, over 3 million individuals in the United States have autism, which amounts to a 10 to 17 percent increase in recent years. While no two cases of autism are ever the same, for teens with level 1 autism, a credible wilderness adventure therapy program can provide individualized care that helps autistic teens break through boundaries, build connections, and establish healthier patterns. It’s essential for parents to aid in this process and support their teen’s development by encouraging and arranging proper treatment that will facilitate lasting change and a brighter future.
